Greater Blue Mountains Drive Blackheath

Natural Attractions

This Greater Blue Mountains Drive Discovery Trail explores five routes radiating out like the spokes of a wheel, each an out-and-back drive that can be done in any order from the charming mountain village of Blackheath.

Offering a journey across plateau and valley environments, this Discovery Trail includes a wide selection of lookouts, picnic sites and walks.

Highlights of the Trail include Pulpit Rock, Govetts Leap, Evans Lookout, all with unsurpassed yet different views of the Grose Valley, home of the Blue Gum Forest; the rural Megalong Valley and Shipley Plateau.

Starting and returning to Blackheath this 92 kilometre trail will take two to three hours to drive, plus stops. It includes suburban streets, narrow sealed and sometimes windy and unsealed roads.

Stop at the National Parks Blue Mountains Heritage Centre and learn more about the area through interactive displays .
